As an Astros fan, I'm not sure I like giving up 4 top prospects for the right to an excellent but aging pitcher's 2.4 seasons of work at over $20 million per. It certainly means Cole will go elsewhere this offseason. But I don't hate the deal, and it makes sense to make the most of your window.

Where the real mistake lay was in not offering Charlie Morton a freaking qualifying offer a few months ago.
